17.09 cents (price per piece for 1000 or more) for NEW LC brass, primed with milspec primers; you can't even get new unprimed brass for anywhere near that price.
I am using a 7.62x39 brass bore brush on my RCBS Case Prep Center to clean the powder from inside the case neck, and then using the Lee Collet Neck Sizing Die (also available from Graf & Sons) which I modified by cutting off the decapping pin, in order to size the case neck and help with concentricity.
Stock up while these are still available.

Primed, and a good buy for your 308 reloads. Used a brass brush in a lathe to quickly remove sealant in neck. ran through neck die, in progressive reloader, already went through the first 500 rds. Yes I would recommend. And will order more.

The pricing for this primed military brass is very reasonable. The quality of the brass is good. Yes it's slightly tarnished but otherwise it's in very good condition. Should perform as good as US GI brass does.
Good Quality, But a Little Pricey

Brass came well packaged. The cases were a little dirty but was expected. These were a little more than my normal source but the difference is that the cheaper ones come loose and tend to be a little more dinged up. Won't be using the primers. Will have to tumble, re-size/de-prime, swage primer pockets' then trim if needed. Good brass would buy again if on sale.

Good value brass

I shoot a M1A National Match in competition, and consequently I go through a lot of Lake City brass. I like the new production Lake City 308 brass, but that seems to be back ordered for a while. I have found the once fired stuff to be less than ideal because most of it has been fired in oversized machine gun chambers and suffers from weakening at the head. This brass does not have that problem at all. It is slightly tarnished and several cases have some residual powder granules stuck to the inside of the case, but for pull downs it is pretty good. Just make sure that you inspect each case carefully before loading. I sized it in a Forster National Match die with the decamping pin removed.All of the primers ignited properly. Obviously, you will need to remove the crimp after the initial firing. I shoot 168 SMKs on top of IMR 4895 or IMR 4064 in matches, but I have found that the Hornady 150g FMJBT on top of XX.Xg of IMR 4895 seated to 2.810" with a Wilson arbor seating die makes a dandy practice round out to 300 yards. Not as accurate as the SMKs, but pretty good and significantly less expensive to load for practice. Overall, I'd say that this brass is a good value. Shoot it once, tumble and do a full case prep, and it's ready for a match. Hope this helps. Be blessed. Mike
